My father has always said “You just never know what a day is going to bring.”
How very true.
Today, my daughter and I were on our way to pick up my check and we were in a car accident. We’re okay. Emily was a bit freaked out when it first happened. She seemed fine by the time we got home but she’s sleeping with me tonight and that’s okay. My collar bone is sore where the seat belt was because I got flung forward when the other car hit us and the seat belt locked. BUT…we’re okay. Car? Not so much.
My poor baby. Her first wreck.
I felt terrible for the girl that hit us. She’s just a college kid. Accident was her fault and she got ticketed. Her insurance rates will probably go through the roof and BONUS: her court date in on her 21st birthday. How sad is that? She was so upset and so scared when it happened. This was her first accident, too. She had no choice but to admit it was her fault but like my best friend Denise and my Mom said – maybe this needed to happened and she’ll be a more careful driver in the future. Still, I did feel for her in a big way.
Denise – this is Madame X to any of you who read my “Best Friend’s Car” post – rescued us. Em and I were very close to where our office is (Denise and I work together) so she picked us up after the tow truck left. Took us to get my checked cashed and to run errands. I swear that woman pulls my ass out of the fire more than she should!
I’m blessed. Very blessed.
Also…while at Walmart this evening I caught my own contestant for People of Walmart. Yep, was behind her in line. Took this with my cell phone. Came home and made a little edit. That’s her! Have you seen the video?
